Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb...Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow...Then Easter came and she ate the little lamb, little lamb...:)).
Hi guys! Sorry for the lousy jokes about the poor little lamb that got butchered on Easter for the sake of tradition :P.
I love holidays mainly because I get to spend some time with my (extended) family, and this Easter was no exception! On Saturday I helped my mother in law prepare the traditional Easter dishes (drob, lamb onion and garlic stew). It was...interesting, especially since my folks don't eat lamb, so as a kid I always "assumed" I don't like it either. Then, one Easter, I was invited to my boyfriend's house for lunch, and his mother had only cooked lamb (stew, soup, drob, you name it...). So I had no choice but eat it...I cannot say it became my favorite dish, but it was ok.
After lunch, we painted the eggs ( a more enjoyable activity :P), then we went out with friends and at midnight we went to church to bring home the Holy Light.
On Sunday we went to my grandparents' house for a barbecue. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we had a wonderful time.
As you can see, I had a quite traditional (and beautiful) Easter. Now, I'm back in Bucharest, starting work tomorrow (reality check!!!) and trying to survive the thought that I still have almost 2 months 'till my holiday in France. Be still, my beating heart!
I hope you enjoyed the holidays and I wish you all a wonderful week!
